A video of a young elementary school student, Keaton Jones, from Tennessee, went viral a couple days ago. In the video, Keaton is distraught and crying about his day of being bullied at school. His mother recorded his thoughts about bullying and posted it on Twitter, where it soon got social media attention.

“That video broke my heart, I watched it and cried. He [Keaton] is so cute,” senior Felicity Haten said.

The video soon got around to many and many have spoken with Keaton and have gave him support. Letting him know that he is not alone, and that bullying is a real issue.

“Bullying will always be prevalent no matter what age, race, religion, or whatever you are. It sucks that we can’t stop it altogether but we can come together as a force to try and diminish it,”  junior Jonny Panietz said.

Keatons video got so well known over a few days that even a few celebrities have reached out to him over Twitter, tweeting him emotional support, and even inviting him to go to red carpet events.

“Stay strong, Kraton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?” Chris Evans, the star of the Captain America movies, tweeted.

More celebrities have reached out to Keaton over the past days, giving Keaton Jones name known everywhere.

“I find it funny because those kids made him [Keaton] feel bad that day, and now he is probably on top of the world right now. Major karma,” Paneitz said.
